6. Crochet Cat Ears by With Alex

This project kind of makes me think of that line from Mean Girls, about Halloween costumes: “The hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears.” You probably won’t find me in lingerie but I would definitely rock these ears if I needed a last minute Halloween costume!

They’re super fast and easy to make. So if you need a last minute Halloween costume for a work party or just for some grownup festivities, these are right up your alley!
